As I recall, it was the .035" Allen wrench. I did manage to find mine at the
local Ace, so you might see if they have it someplace you wouldn't normally
look. Cost all of 50 cents or so.
BTW, for those who might want to check it out, I recently got some Abec 7
bearings from a source I found
At first I was a bit sceptical, given the pricing, but they seem to be far
superior to the ones I had gotten from McMaster-Carr. The ones I got were
the E1-9. These are stainless steel, double-shielded, Abec-7 unflanged
bearings at a price of $5.63 each. Don't know how many they have in stock,
since I ended up having to call them. Their web ordering/buying wasn't
working and when I called, their inventory was a bit different from what
they had online. However, they were able to ship out four of 'em to me and I
had them in a few days. They're in the San Jose, CA area.
